The 2017 Year 9 Invictus Wellbeing Program hiking expedition to Kosciuszko National Park was characterised by wide horizons and freezing nights.
Our students navigated their way from campsite to campsite and demonstrated a variety of problem solving skills in order to get into camp on time. Some groups explored caves by torchlight, others summited Howell’s Peak and all visited historic huts or homesteads.
The horizon was frequented by kangaroos and wild brumbies whose environment we were privileged to share for a couple of days.
Throughout the camp students worked in teams and showed empathy to their classmates as they negotiated obstacles and made team decisions. Stories were shared by campfire at night and each of us came home a little footsore and a whole lot more appreciative of one another and the world we live in.
